Welcome to the WATTNESS home page. WATTNESS is a team involved in U.S. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).

The FIRST Competition is a national contest which immerses high school students in the exciting world of engineering. Over six short intense weeks, students and local volunteers work together to brainstorm, design, construct, and test their robot. The teams then compete in a spirited, no-holds-barred regional tournament complete with referees, time clocks and huge amounts of cheering. This year, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition (sponsored by Johnson & Johnson) will once again be held at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey this March.

Goals of the FIRST program:

  1. To expose middle and high school students to engineering, science, technology, and practical applications of these skills.
  2. To create an environment that makes heroes out of engineers and scientists.
  3. To create an environment that excites technicians and engineers, reminding them of why they chose this career.
  4. To develop a partnership involving schools, communities, and businesses.
  5. To help foster life-long learning among all members of our community

Presidential Thoughts on FIRST:

I am proud of the students participating in the FIRST Competition for using their energy and creativity to imagine a brighter future for themselves and our nation. I thank the families, teachers, engineers, and corporate leaders whose hard work and dedication to excellence have inspired these teams to discover that science can be fun, accessible, and the key to personal and professional fulfillment.
